My daughter has danced for them for some years and I enjoy watching their performances. I would like to help more often, but I live elsewhere.

I've learned so many things from Hartfel Foundation and changed my life. Hartfel is allowing me to pursue my dance career, and showing what true art is. I am confident of what I do with Hartfel and believe that this company can become one of America's finest ballet company.

I was enthralled and spellbound as I thoroughly enjoyed a performance by the Hartfel Ballet last year. The dancers weaved a visual tapestry that portrayed a story that enhansed the live music. These dancers work so tirelessly through long hours of rehersal and do not have significant opportunities to perform before a live audience. These beautiful dancers bare their emotions and leave them on the dance floor for us to enjoy. What a treat.

I've had a great experience as a Board member of Harfel. Since inception, the company has been passionate and committed about achieving their vision to not only transform Ballet arts, but also outreach to the community including those with disabilities. As a person you grow with the Hartfel. They share their artistic values with you through mentoring and honest feedback. If you can't take the truth about yourself, then the Hartfel is not for you. They aren't shy or apologetic about confronting complacency. That passion is what is transformative about them. I think they could focus more on developing their Blind dancer program. This is an area where there are more potential funds and grants to be secured.

The Hartfel Foundation is giving me the chance to pursue my dreams of cultivating my art and dancing professionally; a chance I did not think I would ever get. The caring and nurturing atmosphere, alongside the emphasis on the art and self worth, makes this foundation stand out from the rest. Hartfel has shown me what I can be and is guiding me there.

I've attended several of the Hartfel Ballet performances and can attest to their artistic ability and professionalism. I greatly admire their attempts to make the arts, like ballet, more accessible to the public - especially their work with the blind and with young children. Please try to see them perform if you can and provide them valuable support!

I have been benefiting from the revolutionary and highly effective programs of the Hartfel Foundation for nine years now. I can honestly say without Hartfel I would no longer be dancing or working to pursue my dream of becoming a truly virtuoso dance artist. I also gained the opportunity to assist in the Step in the Dark Dance Program, which was an amazing hands-on experience teaching blind and vision-impaired children the art of dance.

All of the dancers and board members possess an unyielding passion and drive to achieve what they believe in. To become one of America's finest artistic organizations. The outreach programs are bold and daring and elicit amazing results. Anyone touched by this company of individuals will experience the power of honesty,integrity,and unyielding dedication to fullfill our promises. The only thing missing is the muscle of strong funding.

I have followed the Hartfel Ballet Co. since its beginning and attended almost every performances. Their progress in perfecting their art has been amazing. They continue to delight with their professional, high quality dancing and their dedication to the art of ballet and to the company. They are also eager to serve the community with their outreach programs, but are hampered by their lack of funds. It would be great if the hard working dancers could actually get paid for their outstanding work.
